In recent years, a great deal of interest has focused on the field of animal assisted therapy/education. Meanwhile, animal-assisted interventions are being used in many fields of activity in social work. Following a distinction between the different concepts, the paper will explain the scientific development and the current state of research, also presenting various explanation approaches and theories on the human-animal relationship. Particular attention will be given to animal-assisted interventions in children and youths with behavioural disorders, with a special focus on children and youths with ADHS and comorbid disorders. The paper will also feature examples of existing educational concepts that are already used with success in the work with children and youths.The empirical part of the present work will select the research design of the experimental individual case study. In terms of methodology, the work will resort to the concept of methodological triangulation. By using qualitative and quantitative survey instruments, the paper will attempt to identify possible spheres of action in an animal-assisted intervention with children with ADHS and comorbid disorders carried out as part of this work. The work will describe the research field, the planning, and the course of the examination, and will present the underlying concept of the conducted intervention. The examination results obtained will be structured depending on the respective method. Finally, conclusions will be drawn.The present paper shows that animal-assisted interventions can be used meaningfully in the work with children and youths with ADHS and comorbid disorders. The positive tendencies identified in the examination results of this individual case study demonstrate that educational possibilities can be created which may also provide support in the area of ADHS.
